replica mount --Prices?

8 posts in this topic

I caught a nice eye on LOW a few years back and said I was going to do a replica mount but never did. Now I am going to do it.

What do you think of the quality?

How much will it cost?

Are some brands better than others?

Thanks

Hitman

I think a replica runs about $12-$15 depending on who does it. I think mine ran about $13 a inch at Artistic Anglers.

I highly recomend Artistic Anglers in Duluth. I have had replicas by them and their work is awesome. Their painter does the best work I have ever seen.

One of our FMers Outdooran works there and he knows his stuff.

I did a walleye rep a year later also and I love it and would highly recommend it. I did mine from Fibretec in Nisswa and I am very happy with it. The cost was in that 12 to 15 range. Both places will do great work. Always remember to send a pic or specify where you caught the fish.

The biggest difference you will see is in the painting. Some look "fake" or "Plastic" and others look just like the one you caught.

Check out shows, ask for references of people who had the same type fish or same fish from same place as where yours was from.

Hitman, My son had a 32" done a few years back from LOW also.Artistic Anglers out of Duluth did a great job. They have a special at the Sportsman show in March. $10/inch regular price was $12/inch at the time. DrJ.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
